over for a year and a half. now i understand moral high ground. it's with us every day. let's look at health care. today there was an op-ed in "the wall street journal" about the cost of obama care. there's continuing articles on the cost of dodd-frank, transactions for real estate. in the end, the moral high ground is a very big argument. steve liesman's center piece was, how the spin, so to speak, is going to be about the word default. and he's absolutely right. there's a certain default on interest payments. that's a legal default. but when you don't send the checks to people on social security or medicare or you don't send checks to veterans or you don't keep veterans hospitals open, that's a moral issue. it's going to be impossible to beat that. and in the end it comes down to a philosophical argument nobody really wants to have. and when we have it, people make fun of the argument. but the argument is, socialism. to help the collective by doing something to the few is the very cornerstone of socialism. whether right or wrong. there's a moral high ground that we're that going
be the case. we're learning president obama will hold his first news conference of his second term, certainly of the new year, 2013, that will happen 11:15 this morning in the east room. it is an open press event. perhaps the reason for this is his push on immigration. we may hear some of that at the top of this news conference what he hopes to accomplish there in terms of comprehensive immigration reform. no doubt there will be questions though about the debt ceiling and how the president expects to make up those revenues, whether he will try to do that to increase taxes one form or another. there will be a lot of questions this morning perhaps on afghanistan as well. that comes up 1:15 this morning and that comes up here on fox news. bill: you wonder if his answers parallel with what senator lee was talking about or whether they go in an entirely different direction. that is where the battle lines draw on this new term. martha: correction. this will be the last press conference of the last term because the inauguration is coming up. bill: duly noted. a week from today, "america's newsroom"
